I don't think it's a problem with your environment. I have seen that
error before, and it's due to changes in MapServer 5 affecting that
Itasca demo. You can grab an updated version of the Itasca demo
configured for MS4W:
- download the "MapServer Itasca Demo Application" from
- extract it at same root as your ms4w
- restart apache
- goto http://127.0.0.1 and look for the Itasca demo link at the bottom
